The artist has created a space of contemplation, cognition, and identity, where the community can engage on multiple levels. This sculptural artifact creates a social mapping space that uses light to project a virtual rupture onto and into a physical space. As viewed from interior to the exterior, the structure assists the viewer to realize and participate in the relationship between the physical and the virtual through a physical experience. The artist presents a mirroring of the existing park-scape through the spatial doubling. This in turn creates a meta-space of social perception with reflective materials offering a kinship between that which is natural and that which is manmade. For more information click here.

Catch and Land: A Participatory Environments Network
Through Catch and Land, a network of sonic and kinetic performances creates a social connection and movement throughout the park. Comprised of a system in which musical performance and sport performance exist in a symbiotic relationship, simultaneous performances of games and sound inform and influence one another. Observers are invited to participate in the artist-invented sport, or to simply just watch and listen. The compositions of sound are based on the spatial and historical information of each neighborhood. For more information click here.
Participation is encouraged!
